=== Scope ===

Interaction and Concurrency Experiences (ICEs) is a series of international scientific meetings oriented to theoretical computer science researchers with special interest in models, verification, tools, and programming primitives for complex interactions.

The general scope of the venue includes theoretical and applied aspects of interactions and the synchronization mechanisms used among components of concurrent/distributed systems, related to several areas of computer science in the broad spectrum ranging from formal specification and analysis to studies inspired by emerging computational models.

We solicit contributions relevant to Interaction and Concurrency, including but not limited to:
* Formal semantics
* Process algebras and calculi
* Models and languages
* Protocols
* Logics and types
* Expressiveness
* Model transformations
* Tools, implementations, and experiments
* Specification and verification
* Coinductive techniques
* Tools and techniques for automation
* Synthesis techniques

The special focus of ICE 2014 is automation in concurrency and interaction.

=== Selection Procedure ===

Since its 1st edition in 2008, the distinguishing feature of ICE has been an innovative paper selection mechanism based on an interactive discussion amongst authors and PC members.

During the review phase, each submission is published on a dedicated discussion forum. The discussion forum can be accessed by the authors of the submission and by all the PC members not in conflict with the submission. The forum is used by reviewers to ask questions and clarifications to the authors, allowing them to better explain all the aspects of their submission. The evaluation of the submission will take into account not only the reviews, but also the outcome of the discussion.

As witnessed by the past six editions of ICE, this procedure considerably improves the accuracy of the reviews, the fairness of the selection, the quality of camera-ready papers, and the discussion during the workshop.

=== Submission Guidelines ===

We invite for three types of submissions:
(1) Full Papers;
(2) Short Papers;
(3) Brief Announcements of already Published Papers.

Full and short papers will appear in the post-proceedings and must report previously unpublished work and not be simultaneously submitted to other conferences/workshops with refereed proceedings. The ICE 2014 post-proceedings will be published in Electronic Proceedings in Theoretical Computer Science ( In addition, we invite for brief announcements of already published results, should the authors be interested in discussing their published research with the ICE community and giving a talk. Brief announcements will not be part of the post-proceedings.

Submissions must be made electronically in PDF format via EasyChair ( Full papers should not exceed 15 pages in length, while short papers and brief announcements should not exceed 5 pages with the EPTCS style (

Accepted (full and short) papers and brief announcements must be presented at the workshop by one of the authors.

=== Special Issue ===

We plan to invite extended versions of selected full papers to a special issue in a highly-reputed journal. Such contributions will be regularly peer-reviewed according to the standard journal policy, but they will be handled in a shorter time than regular submissions.
